Your brain seems to work the same as mine. I've been experiencing everything you describe. Just like you, I've begun to find maintenance more difficult, and I'm not sure why. Is it just psychological fatigue? Does a mild sense of deprivation, day in and day out, have some kind of cumulative effect? I wish I had the answers.
